Here is a radio interview with Errol about his 1989 exhibition at the Holdsworth Galleries, Woollahra (Sydney) which was held from 21st Oct - 8th Nov 1989. The interviewer is Sophia Hendel, who presented the Arts programme at the time, on Eastside Radio 89.7FM in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.
They discuss two sculptures, "Poetic Fragment" (cast stainless steel); and a half-size replica of Errol's 4-metre welded stainless steel work, "Kakadu Flight", which won the Ueno Royal Museum Award at the 6th Henry Moore Grand Prize Exhibition in Hakone, Japan in 1989. The Award required the original to remain on permanent display at the Open-Air Sculpture Museum in Utsukushi-ga-hara, Japan.
They discuss the sculptural process and how it relates to both mathematics and nature, through contours which naturally occur, eg. in landscapes and clouds.

Thank you also to Mrs Gisella Scheinberg, proprietor of the Holdsworth Galleries who firstly, had the foresight to donate the gallery's entire manuscript collection to the National Library of Australia when the Holdsworth Galleries closed; and who secondly, gave me her kind permission to research and copy parts of the collection relating to Errol's exhibitions, one of which was this original cassette recording, which had been provided to her by Sophia Hendel.
